Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) is a technique used for the investigation of partially ordered materials. It is often employed to characterise the crystalline structure of polymers, by measuring the interatomic spacings within the unit cell. It is sub-nanometre-sized structures within the sample that cause the wide angles.
WAXS, essentially analogous to powder diffraction, provides information about crystallisation and can be measured simultaneously with SAXS.
The Materials and Magnetism beamline provides a unique, world-class single crystal X-ray diffraction facility for studying a diverse range of materials.More information
I22 is a multifunction SAXS/WAXS beamline for the physical and life sciences. Small-angle scattering provides essential information on the structure and dynamics of large molecular assemblies in low ordered environments. Working in both transmission and grazing incidence with full and microfocus beam I22 provides a working platform for studying the full range of soft matetr systems.More information
DL-SAXS is an offline SAXS instrument that compliments I22 and B21 in delivering the highest quality lab SAXS data. The Instrument will also act as a testbed for Sample Environment Development for SAXS.More information
